Default Which Country Club Rest. would be best?

I want to have a party for about 10 to 15 people next time we are down at our house. I would like a place that has good food, good service and a place (perferably outside) where we could be seated at close tables. Price is not a factor. Where would you suggest? Thanks.

Lighthouse on Lake Sumter has outside seating with a nice view of the lake and LSL, good food and good service.

My Bad -

No CC will handle your group as you wish and most of them have food that is subpar, Cattle Baron's food isn't very good either, try the Lighthouse on Lake Sumter.

Default Glenview Country Club

Friends of ours brought us to the Glenview CC, the only CC we've been to so far. We were impressed and really enjoyed the meal. It certainly looked like a place that could easily accommodate a group outdoors. Check their webpage at: http://www.searchthevillages.com/vil...w-country-club or http://www.glenviewrestaurant.com/

If you are having a party with some friends, maybe you want entertainment. Alot of places have early entertainment like from 5 - 9 or so. That would be fun if you wanted to get some dancing in.

We were at Glenview a week ago Friday with a group of 12. They wouldn't seat us at one table or at adjacent tables. Asked to talk to the Mgr and was told that one waiter couldn't serve 12 people at one time. (he was doing fine with our table of 8 and an adjacent table of 4). We go out every Friday night with this group and was never told we were an extreme burden to the wait staff at other places. Will not be returning to Glenview very soon.

The Lighthouse had outside entertainment last night, country and western singer, very loud, which made it difficult to talk.

I understand that you're looking for a Country Club Restaurant and I think Lopez has the best reputation. I used to love Palmers but not so much lately. Came Garden has nice ambiance on the outside patio, but I find the food at most Country Clubs is just OK.

My personal favourite for good food at a restaurant is Bonefish.

Cane is able

to do that.

I like the lighthouse outside.

If you want country CLUB and ambiance, Lopez. (Also higher prices.)

I love going to Cattle Baron. I think the food, food choices & prices are great. I like sitting out on the balcony having drinks before going in for dinner.
